Wednesday 30th May, 2018 marks the 173rd anniversary of the arrival of our East Indian ancestors to our beautiful island. Let us take this time to commemorate their achievement of landing on our shores and remember to reflect on the journey to their destination.

As they embarked on a voyage towards a better future, they encountered various obstacles and endured harsh conditions on the way. However, with steady perseverance, absolute determination and unwavering hope for an improved quality of life, they were able to enter into a new world, filled with limitless opportunities.

Let us not be discouraged by the hardships and struggles that will meet us on our paths but draw strength from our brave ancestors who have embedded in us a determination to succeed.

Have a Happy and Safe Indian Arrival Day 2018.
